ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

just gotta say that Tahir is really earning his money/reputation for our team, SA raped Netherlands like by 231 runs :D

He's really adding the missing dimension to the South African team and they're looking the team to beat at the moment. Probably a good thing they held him back and didn't play him in the last series with India. Now he's catching everyone by surprise.

That's old news.. the "fans" attacked the house of Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hassan this morning...

http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/world/8958501/bangladesh-captains-house-attacked-by-angry-fans/

On another note.. Shahid Afridi is in super form.. almost 15 wickets already :blink: Bowlers like him and Malinga are very dangerous coz they have usual style and variations..

Thats horrible.

Some people take sports too seriously. :(

Thats the sub-continent for you.. cricket is not a just sport in the sub-continent..

Watching Pak-Can replay now and 3 decisions were over turned.. I love the review system.. in the old days these three obvious lbws not being given would cause the balling team the game.. just wish FIFA/UEFA do something similar in football...

The idea is good, but if such a system were introduced, then I think a stop for review will impact the game in a very adverse way. The way I see it, football is a game of speed and technique constrained by time and a stop will disrupt the flow of the game.

Great match today. I hope Sri Lanka wins :D

I don't think having something like DRS in football would hold it up any more than stoppages for injuries and so on do. Considering what is in stake in a lot of modern professional football matches, I think it's inexcusable for teams to be potentially cost massive results because of human error, when the technology exists to make the right decision.

That was a fantastic turnaround for us, good win against a top side. However we still have yet to put in an all around good performance with both bat and ball so hopefully that will come soon enough.

India and Australia have the same problems IMO. Great batting lineups, weak bowling lineups, with the exception of Zaheer Khan for India, and Brett Lee for Australia. My prediction is for a very close game, I wouldn't even like to guess a potential winner.

Winners of which will play Pakistan.. great bowling and so-so batting.. what a great display by the Pakistani spinners today though.. (Y) Lets see what the batsmen do now.. a good team should get 113 runs without losing any more than 2 wickets...

The windies aren't that bad, they clearly under performed. I have a sad feeling our match with Sri Lanka will be a bit one sided unless we can finally pull together a good batting and bowling performance

I feel England are a very dangerous team coz of the way they got to the QF.. reminds me of how India won the WC or how Pakistan won in 1992.. no one even thought they could win.. they barley made it to semi final and then final..

If we put a good batting and bowling performance together in the same match, we can beat anyone. The only reason for our struggles so far is that we haven't managed to do that.

And it's fantastic to see Australian dominance of world cricket brought to an end, it's good for the game

Once Gilchrist, McGrath and Symonds etc retired we all knew this would happen..

But their batting is in great form.. as is Pakistan bowling.. Pakistan batting needs to be at its best if they want to win this one and the wicket keeper can afford to let those easy chances go coz Ross Taylor already showed what can happen if you give good players a second or third chance...

yup exactly..

all we need to do is to make sure our first 2 players stick on the pitch and make atleast 100 runs .. because if they get out in the first few overs we get under alot of pressure and the rest of the team just follows in line. On the other side Indian batting impresses me everytime. I am a big tendulkar fan!..
